It's run like this to ensure the best service, minimal lag and highest security. But, given the current usage, it could equally run on a desktop sitting on the end of an ADSL line. This would be a lot cheaper, but would be more prone to failures, power cuts, packet loss & lag and access to the website affecting speed of the game. Of course, there are plenty of options between the two, but that's the sort of thing I meant. In addition, event prizes would have to be cut, but this would be a good opportunity for players to sponsor the game directly. [/quote]
